The Science of Spirit Possession
Continued intermittent cases of individuals who go on the rampage and kill innocent children should not only question gun laws, but should also question what lies at the root of such destructive and irrational behaviour. In this paper presented at a conference in 2008 I asked this question, which is still being ignored:
Here is a link to an article in the Los Angeles Times:
One day the scientific facts presented in this book will be taught to all medical students throughout the civilised world.
At this conference we’ll be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Institute of Noetic Sciences. The theme of the conference is Explore. Dream. Discover.
In the 19th century, the French psychiatrist, Pierre Janet declared that all forms of dissociation were pathological, and this is the view that is maintained by medical science to this day. However, the Harvard philosopher and father of modern psychology, Professor William James disagreed with Janet, and so did Cambridge scholar F.W.H. Myers. Myers gathered evidence from twenty years of research to support the hypothesis that normal, healthy people can also dissociate and hear voices. He furthermore discovered, much to his own surprise, that the spirits of the deceased can not only communicate with the living, but can actually ‘possess’ them. Here then is the scientific evidence that asserts that the spirit lives on after death, and the spirit world is in constant interaction with the physical one that we all know. This thesis provides a scientific conceptual framework that can accommodate the phenomenon of spirit possession and challenges what most of us in the modern world of science and technology choose to disbelieve. This is why this manuscript will be published under the new title of ‘Beyond Belief’.
